Practices

Our legal services are highly regarded for their professionalism and expertise.

Clients come to us because they need practical answers. That is why we appreciate the power of saying ‘yes’ or ‘no’ rather than ‘maybe’. Our significant size in the Finnish market means that we have the depth of resources needed to represent clients in even their most complex and important matters. Krogerus lawyers are often involved in transactions and proceedings that are cross-border in nature or where we represent the domestic subsidiary of an international corporation. We offer a broad range of legal services across the corporate spectrum.

Taxation

We are regularly involved in the development of innovative and tax efficient structures for the full spectrum of transactions, private investment and other types of funds, financial instruments and incentive schemes. Our practitioners are known for their sophisticated tax advice on the on cross-border and international aspects of complex corporate structures. We also advise on all aspects of direct and indirect taxation, including litigation, with a focus on corporate taxation and provide strategic tax planning advice to a broad range of companies, including family-owned enterprises, partnerships and non-profit organisations.
